Stayed here last week before a business meeting the next day. This hotel is big, be prepared for a long walk to your room. Check in was busy at 8:30 the team on the desk were friendly and helpful. Bar food was okay, breakfast had a great choice and the coffee was excellent. Mattress was very comfortable ensuring a great...

Arrived early evening on Friday night for two nights for a conference, met at reception with friendly staff and 'processed' efficiently, even a friend whose name had been entered incorrectly in the system was found and we were both sorted out, in hotel directions explained and sent on our way to seek out our room. Many reviews about the complexity...

Rooms - in dire need of renovating & updating. Showers were a complete joke. Restaurant - food poor to say the least. Very little choice, overpriced & not inspiring. Staff - young, pleasant enough but totally lacking training & proper guidance. Temperature throughout the hotel wrong - some parts roasting hot whilst other areas freezing cold. Generally a very disapointing...

The hotel wasn't expensive but it seems tired and the bar service could be a lot sharper. The breakfast was superb and was probably the highlight of the visit. Our room had a small flood owing to a leaking shower; the duty manager responded to this promptly showing great customer care. The thing is that with some investment (particularly in...

Good rural business hotel. Could be much better, but quite acceptable. Located between Buckingham and Milton Keynes so handy for either. Parking is easy. Nice historic entrance. Reception staff friendly and good. My room was a little on the small side but fine, clean and well appointed. The free wifi works fine. Easy check out too. Bar area looked good...

very mixed experience, at the beginning the receptionist was very helpful, although the building layout is very confusing she made had a fairly clear explanation. On the first night a rude gentleman made me feel unwelcome in the restaurant and suggested I used the bar lounge, which happened to be a great experience. On the second evening the restaurant staff...
